Abstract

In the present paper the development of the Delft Systematic Deadrise Series (DSDS) is described. The DSDS has been under development for decades by now and consists of a large family of systematically varied hard chine planing monohulls, based on the original research by Clement and Blount, which have all been tested in the same speed range, changing the same parameters and using the same experimental set up. The rationale behind the DSDS is highlighted. The DSDS contains up to now some 24 different models in 350 different conditions all tested in the same speed range between Fn∇ = 0.75 and Fn∇ = 3.0.
Recently there has been a new extension to the DSDS with the inclusion of more measurements on hulls with twisted bottom and rocker in the aft ship. These results are presented in this paper.
In addition detailed access is facilitated to all the hull geometries used into the DSDS and to all the raw measurement data obtained during the tests by means of free access to a dedicated website.
